Blueberry Tiff

Blueberry Tiff


Description: Blueberry Tiff is a deciduous shrub that typically features dark green foliage that turns shades of red and orange in the fall, providing attractive autumn color. It produces clusters of white or pink flowers in spring, followed by medium to large-sized berries that ripen to a deep blue color in summer. The berries are known for their sweet flavor, making them excellent for fresh eating, baking, or preserving.

Size: This blueberry variety typically grows to a height of 4 to 6 feet (1.2 to 1.8 meters) with a similar spread. It has an upright, bushy growth habit, forming a rounded shape. Proper pruning can help maintain its size and shape, as well as promote fruit production by encouraging new growth.

Best Growing Zones: Blueberry Tiff thrives in USDA hardiness zones 4 to 8. It prefers regions with cold winters and moderate summers, though it can tolerate a range of climates. It performs best in areas with acidic soil and full sun exposure, though it can tolerate partial shade, especially in hotter regions.

Soil Requirements: This blueberry variety prefers acidic soil with a pH level between 4.5 and 5.5. It requires well-drained soil with good fertility, rich in organic matter. Amending the soil with organic matter, such as peat moss or compost, can improve soil acidity and fertility, promoting healthy growth and fruit production. Regular watering is important, especially during the growing season, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged.

Maintenance: Blueberry Tiff is a relatively low-maintenance shrub. Pruning is typically done in late winter or early spring to remove any dead, damaged, or crowded branches and promote new growth. Mulching around the base of the plant can help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Fertilizing with a balanced fertilizer formulated for acid-loving plants in spring can provide additional nutrients to support healthy growth and fruit production.
